After preaching how important it is to have a day off, to allow your body to recover and to enjoy foods that you’ve earned (while keeping in mind your goals) yesterday, I woke up this morning feeling porky and bloated. The Nando’s I had yesterday, and the All-bran I had when I got home really didn’t help and this morning I’d put on nearly 50% of what I’d lost and for the first time I feel disheartened – How is that taking 1 day can ruin the efforts of 4?! I have to admit, that I’d expected my weight to have perhaps flatlined or even gone up slightly.
I have decided that the best way forward is patience. I’m back to the calorie controlled diet of low carb, low far, high protein and I am also taking my supplements again, so I hope that tomorrow morning my weigh-in is a little more encouraging.
I feel that I need to be pushing my body a bit more this week though. I will be doing my using Spinning classes in the evening, but I’m considering the possibility of combining them with other training. I might take in 2 sets of gym clothes and when I’ve ruined the first one during spinning – change and the then do some work on the rower and some running perhaps? I’d love to hear what the readers of this blog think would work.
The gym I train in isn’t large, but the number of members are. I am considering at the moment changing to a different gym, mainly because if I want to do any strength training, I simply am unable too. Even the spinning instructor at the weekend agreed with me that it was pretty “crap”.
I have two holidays coming up at the end of August and September – Lucky me (!) – hence the urgency with my training, however it does mean that I can’t be splashing out on new gym membership until October… So until then, I have to grin and bare it!
